Happy Birthday...

to my dear friend Shannon!
Here is a card that I made for her:
This is the first time that I made a card this size! I LOVE it! It all started with the SU stamp "happy birthday with a cherry on top!" Right away I thought of the Sweet Treats cartridge. I knew that this ice cream sundae needed to be cut BIG! I looked around in my envelope stash and found all the extra envelopes from last years Christmas photo cards...PERFECT!
The "pink" for the base of the card was cut at 8" x 8", then scored at 4", and then folded in half.
 The sundae and all its layers was cut (from the Sweet Treats cart page 30) at 7". I ran the cherry through my Xyron upside-down and then "sugared" it with glitter. I used the Cuttlebug folder Divine Swirls on the whipped cream. I covered the chocolate syrup with Glossy Accents {this gave it a SLICK look} let it dry, and then added the sprinkles covered in Stickles.
 I used Glue Dots and added 2 Pinkpaislee tickets that I had stamped on and added Stickles to the images. The tool is from a local scrapbook store, and the ribbon is American Crafts. For me, more is always better, so I added a pearl pin. I bought a box of these pins at the W in the quilting section, and then used my file to file off the sharp tip.

 Paper Recipe:
Base-SU's Pretty in Pink
Background pattern paper-Me and My Big Idea's stack
Silver-Recollections "Shimmery"
Cherry, ice cream, and whipped cream-all from my scrap stash
Chocolate syrup-SU's Chocolate Chip
Stamps and ink-SU
Here it is with her gifts. I even wrapped the gifts to match! I thought that it turned out super cute! I have to tell you that it took all I had not to keep these gifts! ;) I wanted to sooooo bad! {She LOVED all of it!}
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you and I both get some time to craft this weekend!
